I basically bought this foundation because i didn't feel like blowing my 200 dollar paycheck on a becca foundation and concealer. I had heard that revelon was a pretty good line (though I had never used it before) and I really liked thier commercials on TV..so, in my search for my HG foundation, I picked this up...I (illegally) tested it in the store and found that I loved the coverage. It was sheer but still enought to cover up all the nasty blackheads on my cheeks and nose (if anyone knows how to get rid of these, my email is sweetcherrie14@hotmail.com) I used "nude"...i'm probably really "ivory" since i'm really pale but since it's summer i have a bit of color in my face...The price was somewhere in between 11-13 dollars. I really liked the coverage and the staying power isn't that bad...it actually lasts me pretty much throughout the day - i had to do one quick touchup. The packaging is just okay - it's kind of like a glass bottle and you twist off the top to open it. It doesn't come with a sponge or anything to apply it with so the stuff gets all over your hands when you're putting it on...so i took off points for that...other than that - this is my HG for now - my only drawbacks were the price and the application. i'm actually quite surprised at how well it works for a drugstore brand...like someone already posted - "revlon is the cadillac of drugstore cosmetics"...I will repurchase (unless i find something better for cheaper!)

This is a very good foundation for skins with inperfections! I use the Medium Beige and it suits me fine.
I moisturize my face and let that dry.Then I apply very very lighty on my whole face then reapply on scarred areas. You have to apply very lightly and spead quickly or it cakes. If you moisturize before application this foundation goes on much smoother. This foundation lasts all day and doesn't budge. I do reccommend this foundation for people with combo/Oily scarred or acne prone skin. Covers beautifuly and lasts!

I'm not sure what the difference is in the MUA listing for Colorstay foundation or liquid. Any way, I use the regular Colorstay Liquid foundation in Buff. I'm early 30's with oily skin and a PPP complexion. This foundation works well for me. It does dry quickly but no more quickly to me than Macqicontrole by Lancome. Just apply it one area at a time. I've never had a problem putting this on. It stays like they say it does and it really helps keep the shine away. I don't touch up nearly as often as I normally do and it makes my skin look great. The only con to me is the glass bottle with the opening that is too big. Will buy again for sure.

I used this stuff once and will never touch it again! Aren't foundations supposed to be appliable? Who can get this stuff on? It spreads across your face like dried paint... I ended up looking splotched and flakey. Yuke!

Every foundation has the opportunity to make you look cakey. It's all in how you apply it. You have to know how to apply this stuff right or it'll cake up. Also, a little of this goes a long way. When i first started using it, i put too much on and i could see the oils from my nose would seperate the makeup. Now I only use a tiny drop and I don't get that anymore. Also, you have to do your whole face rather quick or it'll be uneven and caked in certain areas. That's really the only downside I can find to this foundation.

This is over priced junk in my opinion. It's too thick and its super hard to blend b/c it dries so friggin quick. Feels like a mask on top of a mask! I would never wear this again. I didnt use it enough to say if it broke me out or not..but its so thick, it problably would have. I sold mine on ebay...but the lady who bought it told me she liked it. Maybe I wasnt applying it right. I dont know...but I thought the coverage was way to thick and it was hard to work with.I tried mixing it with some water, mixing it with a moisterizer, mixing it with witch hazel (I heard it makes foundation thinner), using a sponge...but still, the results were no good...Thumbs up to anyone who could work with this..Needless to say - I wont be buying it again.

I'm a daily foundation wearer and I've used up 3 bottles of this foundation nonconsistently within 3 years. I've come to disliking it after finding a better foundation like "Almay Long Lasting" foundation. This "Revlon Colorstay" foundation was too thick for me. I have large pores and acne prone skin and this foundation enhanced the visibility of the pores. It is a good coverage foundation, but it is hard to apply. It does not blend in well when applying it and drys too quick to blend it in well. Worst of all it stays looking cakey and it made me break out. I realized recently that it was this foundation that was making me break out alot when I used it.

I like this product. If you are looking for total coverage, this is certainly the product for you. One of the major cons about this item is that it is a little thick. It will definitly stay on all day, and it isn't cakey.

i go back and forth with this one; i like it and i also like estee's day wear; i am always searching for a makeup that will stay on for a long period of time; this is close-pluses=lots of shades to pick from; cost negatives=hard to blend, can look maskey.
